Dining Room Ideas: How to Get The Look in Your Home!


If you think about it, your kitchen and dining room is far more than just a place to cook, sit and eat. They are the social hub of our homes, becoming the go-to place for social gatherings, entertaining guests and sitting with the family day to day. We truly believe that with the right furniture, you can transform your dining room into the heart of your home.

So, whether you’re renovating your dining area or would like some tips on how to create effortlessly modern looks, we wanted to inspire you with some of our top dining room ideas. In this post, we’ll give you tips on what pieces to choose to create a certain look, along with stylish alternatives to suit your dining room and budget. We’ll also show you how to coordinate each look with other pieces in your home for a truly stylish setting.


Dining Room 1: The Winter Warmer

Combining a rich walnut table finish with real leather dining chairs will instantly add a cosy yet premium feel to your dining area. This is because wooden finishes have such a tactile and inviting look, while real leather is known for its material quality and longevity.  With a table like the Assi, you’ll also able to extend your seating options, making everyone feel welcome on those cold winter evenings.

If you’re working to a budget or don’t feel you’d benefit from having real leather dining chairs, the faux leather Moda Dining Chair also looks great styled alongside the Assi. The slightly angled brushed metal legs mirror that of the table legs, while the quilted faux leather seat creates an incredibly cosy and inviting look.


Build the look:

To coordinate this stylish set with rest of your space, opt for pieces with a brushed metal finish. The legs of the Deco, Moda and Assi are all finished in brushed metal, so this will really help to tie the whole scene together. If you have a breakfast bar, the Fondi Gas Lift Bar Stools in Brushed Steel would work and treat, while the Assi Compact White Gloss Sideboard will lighten the look and provide storage space for any cutlery, cups and dinner plates.



Dining Room 2: Neutral Zones

Sometimes, less really is more. Keep this in mind if you’re hoping to create a really modern yet simple dining interior. Glass is a great option for more neutral styling as it’ll keep your dining room looking crisp and bright, without creating too much visual impact. Paired with chairs like the Stylo in cool grey,  the look is clean and contemporary without being too busy or over complicated.

The simplicity of glass tables like the Profile means that you can create a variety of different settings depending on the chairs you choose. For example, you can create a strong and impactful look with a piece like the Delta dining chair, due to its matt black leg frame. Alternatively, you could opt for a chair like the Ida which creates a softer look. The Ida adds a touch of warmth to the crisp lines of the Profile with its beech legs and smooth PU padded seat.

To carry a really fresh and contemporary vibe throughout your dining area,  coordinating grey gloss and glass finishes are ideal. If you’d like to break up the look and introduce a hint of colour, this can be done either through your choice of chairs or bar stools, like with the Anzio Modern Bar Stool in Mulberry purple.




Dining Room 3: A Splash of Colour

Introducing colour to your dining area doesn’t mean you have to paint your walls or revamp your cabinets. Choosing a table that’s finished in glossy neutrals like white and grey means you can get really creative with your chair colour combos. Here we’ve styled the Metro White Gloss extending table alongside a coordinated but colourful selection of the Finn dining chairs and dining armchairs for a fun, bold and designer look.

Alternatively, if bold colours aren’t your thing, swap the Finn dining chairs for something like the Tori. Their slim design and angular chrome legs mirror the shape of the Metro table. This helps to tie the look of the whole set together. What’s more, if you’re a little short on space the Tori chairs are a stackable seat. This means you can extend the table and then stack and store the chairs when they’re not in use.



Build the look:

The Finn bar stools are a great way to carry a colourful look through to your kitchen and around your breakfast bar. Available in the same colours as the Finn chairs, you’ll have no trouble creating a seamlessly coordinated setting. If you’re looking for storage, a piece like the Eve Sideboard will keep your dining room looking bright and fresh. Also, having a matt finish and frosted glass top is a subtle contrast to the gloss dining table.
